Why did you choose to pursue a career in ABA?
I always had a great passion for working with people who have special needs. I came across the field of ABA when I was working with children on the Autism spectrum. I was fascinated by ABA’s deep scientific foundation. I started learning and have continued ever since. I loved how ABA was so data and research driven. I’m still amazed watching its effectiveness day in and out. I love it!
Do you have any special areas of interest?
Early intervention, verbal behavior therapy and sensory-based therapy/procedures.
What varied experience do you have in your field?
I have over a decade of experience using ABA and verbal behavior (VB) to help children with autism and other developmental disabilities. I gained a tremendous amount of experience working in the New York system. I worked as a Developmental Therapist in the New York Early Intervention Program, as a Special Education Teacher and in coordinating integrated camp programs and extra curricular programs for young adults who have special needs.
What degrees, licenses, certifications and/or special training do you hold?
What are you passionate about?
I’m most passionate about early intervention. I see how receiving ABA therapy early can help a child and their families live and fulfill their dreams. The success is phenomenal.
What do you enjoy most about working at Building Blocks Therapy?
I am so thankful for my most amazing team at BBT.
They are the most passionate, dedicated therapists I know. They all want to see their children and young adults succeed and they work hard to get them there. We collaborate with each other constantly. We love working together as much as we love the children we serve.
Each of my staff is hand-picked based on their love for the field, their experience and talents.
We’ve created a fun, experienced team who loves and sees each child for who they are. Not for their diagnosis.
